I agree, but as pointed out in my initial post and in post #20, XS front sight is not available.My Alaskan wears an XS front sight and Meprolight rear sight. My Toklat has a Bowen base in the front and a DX tritium blade, and the Meprolights in the rear. All of my defensive pistols (30+ pistols) have tritium sights, the majority of them Meprolights.
Glow paint is a non-solution in my book, because nights are longer than glow lasts, and my holster covers my sights during the day when hiking in bear country, so there’s never truly a time the sights will be glowing when I might need them. I played with the idea of windowed holsters and even a little LED black light to charge in my tent, but the hassle isn’t worth it. Tritium is always on.
Thanks for posting!
